The defiant former presidential candidate,Dr Kizza Besigye has told students of the struggling Makerere University to defy President Yoweri Museveni’s directive of closing the university.
Museveni passed a directive yesterday ordering the immediate closure of the university after progressive strikes by both the students and the academic staff.The academic staff laid down tool after non- payment of their incentive arrears amounting to shs 28 billion whereas students yesterday violently striked over the staffs’denial to lecture them.
According to Besigye,Makerere University students and staff should defy this ridiculous order.There’s money to bail out a private bank but not pay staff dues.
Besigye as the masterminder of the defiance campaign vowed to defy against all what he sees as wrong acts by the incumbent government.
